Egotistical B@5£@rd! | February 24, 2006

Well it’s now official. I have the second biggest Ego on the web. Bigger in fact than the combined egos of Robert Scoble and Jon Hicks.

Screenshot from egosurf.com showing me as having the second highest ego!

Who’d have thunk it eh?

tragically, you seem to have slipped to #3

… and now #10 …

It’s a downhill struggle :)

I got 8209… not bad for somebody who has never written a book ;)

Do you really need hard numbers to back up this claim Andy? Hahahaha…

Interesting that you should value your ego at 5£. I would have thought the #2 ego would have been worth a lot more. That’s my 2¢. ;^{>

My “ego? is 6160 points heavy - nice calculator!

unfortunately egosurf is a fickle and temporary pleasure…and with people submitting “irrelevant” searches bound to score high, it’s all a bit useless.

a possible feature would be being able to enter yourself and an “enemy” and see who wins, a la googlefight

Strange idea. I got 8581 points and nowhere on the top 10 with my real name. However, when I used my nickname, Boogenstein, I got 11686 and the number 3 spot!
I have no idea what it means though.

Yeh, I don’t get it…

I am also noticing that the poits value changes. Why is that?

The Egosurf points degrade as time passes. When I surfed mine, it was 12950 from the start, but a mere ten minutes later it’d become less already.

So the whole thing is maybe fun for just the one time, but it doesn’t really add anything to anything.
